Response to James lau - You don't fool us!!!!!!!!!!!
A democratic g'ment is all very well until it gets into power - then it bends in the wind. The political reality is that when a corporation like RH commands the kind of global power that it does (operating in around 12 countries)it gives them the upper hand over individual states (even the most democratic), who are pitted against each other in a bidding competition to woo the company. Forestry rents contribute big dollars to government coffers - Violence is not the answer to stopping this - If you want to remove RH and stop losing your resources at a rapid pace, start by looking at why it is that governments all over the world invite RH in with open arms. Govt's are freeloading on forestry rents and corporations will logically take advantage that. Yeh it stinks, but don't become anti-Chinese and incite violence - keep seeking knowledge and being proactive. Masalai tokaut is doing an ecellent job at that.
